'Absolutely extraordinary writing, like Charles Dickens writing Ursula K Le Guin... I can't think of anyone who does worldbuilding the way Philip Reeve does.' Ross Montgomery (The Midnight Guardians)
‘An absorbing, brilliant book. A glorious read. I loved my journey to Wildsea.’ Lisa Thompson (The Goldfish Boy)
